Early Years

Tim Hess grew up in Florida before the days of high rise condominiums and Disney World. He has always loved the outdoors and appreciated the natural beauty around him. From a young age, he has been an avid outdoorsman, fascinated by remote and wild places. Tim went north to college and fell in love with the mountains and change of seasons. Disappointed with the rapid pace of development in Florida, he did not return home after graduating but instead, moved to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina to work for The Sea Pines Company in resort management.

A New Way of Life

To this day, Tim remembers his first trip to Wintergreen in May of 1975. The road up the mountain had just been finished and the ski towers were being set by helicopter. The Sea Pines Company had been hired to market and operate the new resort. Little did Tim realize that by that fall, he would be a part of the opening management team. Before he knew it, the weeks turned into months and the months became a year. Tim finally realized that the mountains were where he was destined to be. He had discovered a new way of life and it was clear that living in the mountains with its active lifestyle and picturesque setting was the ideal place to call home. Tim met his wife at Wintergreen and they have raised three children in the area: Greg, Lauren and Paul. They all enjoy hiking, skiing and fly-fishing as a family. Tim has valued the richness that Wintergreen has given his family and he is eager to share his experiences with others. When asked about it he said, "Life is a constant series of choices. Some people get so busy making a living that they forget to make a life for themselves and their families. A place like Wintergreen gives people a chance to put their choices in the proper perspective."
